Charter Schools and private schools want more public money.
These are facts; charter schools receive less money to educate children, though that doesn’t stop most from paying exorbitant management fees.
Nobody forces anybody to open a charter school or private schools to accept vouchers.
That’s why I find it so disingenuous when every so often charter school and voucher proponents come around with their hand out asking for more money.
They complain that it’s not fair, that they don’t have a level playing field with public schools. Well do public schools get to pick who they take and keep? Can public schools put requirements on parents? Do public schools usually exclude special ed or ESOL kids? No, no and no, so please cry me a river about level playing fields.
